yes they have totally different views of the world. But makes the pairing all the more interesting. Tiger will talk some to Phil, some to Bubba (whom I expect doesn't really care right now about golf at all. His world his is new son) But mostly they will have their heads down and keep to themselves.
I do think it is an advantage though to start on the back nine. Maybe get some birdies going before playing the first six holes which could derail many rounds.
I soooo agree! TW & PM are competitors on course......the media just looks for the smallest things in order to get fans attention! Remember when Tiger won the Fed Ex Cup last time.....Phil won the tournament, but Tiger won the Cup. At the awards ceremony Phil commented "I won but he gets the big check".....the media loved it and from then have tried to put a ravine between them. But they do admire each other and are often seen joking around.....
And oh yes......their personalities are night and day apart! PM likes to show off...."I'm the greatest thing to golf since....." while Tiger quietly goes about business. Guess that is what happens when you have "always been the bridesmaid"
